    Kingdom Hearts III is the game fans were waiting for. Thanks to its addictive gameplay, a beautiful graphic design and a spectacular soundtrack, the game puts a finishing touch to the Xehanort saga with a plot not suitable for beginners.

    Fans of the series have been waiting for this game for a long time, and Kingdom Hearts III will not disappoint them. Both the new and old worlds are a joy to play through, and you are given the freedom to explore them as and when you want. The story is complicated, there's no denying it, and this is not an easy jumping on point for people new to the series. If you put your time into this game there's an abundance of rewards to get out of it, only tarnished by some minor gameplay issues. Sora's latest adventure is magical.

    So, has the decade long wait for this anticipated sequel lived up to all the hype? It’s hard to say. I did enjoy my 30 hours with it by the time the credits rolled, and can easily go back for another 50+ hours for bonus stuff should I desire in the future. It’s such an odd feeling to finally have some closure and finality to the series I’ve been enjoying for almost two decades, but it’s finally time to say goodbye to this chapter of Kingdom Hearts and await to see what comes next, hopefully with a much shorter wait this time around and a much more concise way of storytelling.

    Kingdom Hearts III manages to answer many of the series pending questions, entertaining us with an immediate and maybe a bit too easy but very funny gameplay and wowing us with awesome graphics. Story and gameplay might have been better paced and we feel something more could have been made on the many series' pending plots, but this definitely is a game every lover of the series needs to play.

    As a pretext for a trip to the worlds of Disney, it is mesmerizing from start to finish, thanks to an exemplary artistic direction that adapts constantly to the subject. It offers a surprising variety of gameplay and constantly draws the eye, thanks to its dynamic fights. However, the redundancy of the confrontations and its ultra condensed scenario which is lost in uninvited dialogues will sometimes tend to annoy or tire.

    The pulsating heart of the product is in fact also represented by the wanderings of the hero through the brilliant licenses Disney and Pixar, capable of supporting and embellishing a fresco so undoubtedly epic but also imperfect, wounded by the gears of time.

    The game pitches itself as the finale to a series so many have grown up with, but it hasn’t matured with its audience or video games as a medium.

    This game was complete garbage and a waste of time. Looks like a PS3 game and plays worse than a PS2 game.
